Steaks cooked to perfection. Wait staff friendly and professional6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAccommodatingI can't thank them enough for being patient. I've had to change our reservation 3x. The food was outstanding. I had the Parmesan crusted sole accompanied by an avocado crab salad. Lindsey, our waitress was fantastic. And let's not forget the white truffle fries. YUM!!!!!!!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Steakhouse! Great ServiceThe front room of this steakhouse is really cool. You're surrounded by angled glass looking out on 42nd st.
The service is always excellent. We have been here many times.
This rivals most other NYC Steakhouses and does it one better by having an unpretentious staff that seem eager to serve.
You wouldn't know it by the quality of the food or the excellent service, but Capital Grill is actually a chain. I have been to a couple of other locations and they have been high quality, but this one is still the best.
I've been here with a group of 12 corporate associates and on romantic dinners and was impressed each time.
Just try it... you'll like it.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointsI have been to many Capital Grille locations. They are all excellent and consistent for food, service and ambience.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOasis in Midtown bustleA wonderful first time experience after a hectic day. Polished staff was so courteous and they truly wanted the night to be memorable for us. Went out of their way to be helpful but non-intrusive. Gave us as much time as we needed to enjoy our dinner. Food was excellent with no surprises and what you would expect from a high-end restaurant. Pricey, but as with most things, you get what you pay for and in this case we certainly did. Portions and side dishes were large and enough to take home for another meal.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently excellentCapital Grille has been my go to steakhouse for many years and it never fails to exceed my expectations. Great food, great wine and great service.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and fantastic service!The service was incredible. The crab and shrimp starter was very fresh and delicious. The bone in Kona dry aged sirloin was out of this world and it was all paired with a fantastic Bordeaux which was recommended by the wait staff. Great place it is always so consistent!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAn extraordinary discovery;An extraordinary discovery; first, the design and decoration; then the friendly welcome, the excellent ambience, quiet and comfortable, and finally excellent food.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't beat their steaks.I am a regular diner at Capital Grille. For this location the food is exceptional as always at Capital Grilles across the country. Service was adequate but not up to the price level. Ambiance is lacking. We were jammed into a round partial booth for for 6 people but we had 8. That meant two guests were getting run over the whole meal as servers attempted to get by. I live the food but starting to question if it is worth the money. So many options in NYC.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCapital Grille is always good.Capital Grille is always good. The steaks are excellent and service is professional and the place looks the way you want a steak place to look.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecialExperience was excellent............recommend highly for all occassions !!!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Place to "Meat"Our Open Table lunch reservation was honored in a timely manner (hint to others: schedule your reservation for quarter to or quarter past the hour during busy times to avoid the cattle car feel of the reception area on the hour or half hour). We were seated in a less hectic part of the restaurant which enabled easier conversation, but we did not feel isolated from the action nor rushed. Hostess, waiter, and busboy were all polite, friendly, and attentive. Our order was taken and served in a timely manner. The juicy sirloin steaks are a staple of the menu and are well priced for the type of food and restaurant. Both our steaks were overcooked but the manager promptly offered to bring out a new steak which was cooked to perfection.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent SteakI had never been to Capital Grille before, though I certainly wanted to try it for a while. Finally, an opportunity presented itself with a business lunch there, and I couldn't have been more pleased. The service was top-notch. It was attentive without being intrusive, and all the food was prepared to perfection. I personally had the filet special, which was a steak oscar, and that was delicious. If the occasion calls for it, I would certainly return again.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOur late afternoon lunch onOur late afternoon lunch on May 10 went very well. Quiet room, natural lighting in the atrium and very tasty salads and fish entree.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was extremely accommodatiThe staff was extremely accommodating in complying with my request for a quiet table. The service was excellent.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNever a missed stepCapital Grille is consistently excellent. The food, the service, the ambience (for a busy steak house) are beyond reproach.
The Kona-rubbed sirloin so good, I can't get to the other main dishes on the Menu.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent, asThe food was excellent, as always. I would have given it five stars if a sauce, such as a bordelaise, had been offered. The only steak seasoning available on our latest visit was a mushroom rub. Additionally, a couple of light desserts, other than fruit, would make the dessert menu more appealing.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints! SteaksNever disappoints! Steaks are perfectly cooked and the sides are delicious. Professional and attentive staff make the meal that much more enjoyable.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SteakhouseCapital Grille is my favorite of all the "steakhouses." And the fact that it is a chain, can be found throughout the country, and its various locations uniformly provide excellent food and service make Capital Grille a restaurant of first choice.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMYou go to Capital Grill forYou go to Capital Grill for the steak and it never dissappoints. Service is very professional.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMIn the end, the wait was worth it.The food was fine--what I expect from Capital Grille--always well-presented and plentiful. The table service was also excellent. However, we waited for quite some time for our table. I realize that the hostess cannot make people move along, but we were pretty upset by the wait at a busy time of day for our guests. When we were finally seated, however, the table was a very special one in a sunny window nook, so we did feel that we had been rewarded for our wait.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to eat. NiceGreat place to eat. Nice food choices on the menu. Server was pleasant and informative. Would surely go back4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMNew long-term customerThe BEST dining experience in NYC. Staff was exceptional and went the extra mile in ensuring a perfect dining experience. No other restaurant in NYC has ever impressed me as much as Capitol Grill in the Chrysler Center. 5-stars across the board!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful anniversary celebration..wonderful anniversary celebration....the food was delicious...great service...nice, quiet table that I requested....4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHave generally had lunch hereHave generally had lunch here and enjoy it a lot. While my dinner was very good, found the prices excessive at dinner time. So while I will continue to visit the restaurant for lunch, don't think I will be doing dinner there anytime soon again. Just not special enough to spend that much for a non special event meal.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe use Capital Grille wheneverWe use Capital Grille whenever we visit New York and always find the food (steaks!) really good. But beware, this is an expensive place and can be overrun with the "expense account" crowd who are always noisy for some reason...must be all that expensive wine they are consuming. We were also closer to the (noisy) bar than on previous occasions and I would ask for a different table in the future.
The wine list is extensive and you can find some reasonable priced (for New York) bottles.
The service is usually better than we experienced this time - it was okay but nothing special vs the price paid for the meal.
Would we use again? Yes, but there are likewise some other great steak houses in New York.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet enough in the back toQuiet enough in the back to have a meaningful business conversation ...great combination of great food and wonderful atmosphere..4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTERRIFIC EXPERIENCE, SERVICETERRIFIC EXPERIENCE, SERVICE WAS EXCEPTIONAL AND FOOD VERY GOOD.

Gene Panasenko4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellence in all aspectsI have been here several times (business and personal) and each and every time was memorable. Food is positively delicious and unique, and the service is alwas excellent. While I rated the noise level as energetic, there are "two" sides to the restaurant; one being the bar side (energetic) and the other the quieter, romantic, side with a view to the street. The staff are all very supportive of one another, and go out of their way to make you feel special. While on the pricey side, the food, service, ambience, are all worth it. I will always find myself going back time after time.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT EXPERIENCE!we've never had anything but a great experience at capital grille under the historic chrysler building... great place for a nice business lunch...4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dinner was excellent andOur dinner was excellent and we enjoyed the wonderful service that our waiter David gave us.

And our waiter Jordan was really careful with us.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have patronized the CaptialWe have patronized the Captial Grill locations of Philly, Garden City and Chicago and have always had a wonderful experience so when we were meeting friends and they suggested the Chrysler Center location we were happy to oblige. We were not disappointed. Overall, the experience was wonderful. The service was exceptional, the food was excellent, and the ambiance was stunning for a ground floor restaurant (the glass and steel walls and ceiling which angle to a sharp point at the highest two-three story point are evocative of the Chrysler Building's terriced crown).
All in all a wonderful time. We will definitely visit again.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI came with a group of 8,I came with a group of 8, which included a couple of steak connoiseurs and a couple of notoriously difficult to please people. Everyone had a great time and the steaks received enthusiastic comments all around.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was nicelyThe restaurant was nicely decorated on the interior--too bad the entrance could not have been from the main location (135) of the Chrysler Bldg. The staff was friendly and most accommodating, and our waitress did a grand job of providing us with excellent service and keeping with all of our demands. The presentation of the food was well done and the taste, outstanding. Our waitress had recommended the filet mignon which was heavenly good. This is a great spot whether it's a fun occasion for two or a group--highly recommend Capital Grille!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Romance!My boyfriend and I came here for our two year anniversary and were VERY impressed. I had told them it was an anniversary in advance and we arrived to heart confetti strewn across our table. Then we were given complimentary champagne to toast the occasion. Our food was great, the service was exceptional and this place is just so architecturally cool. It was a great experience, would definitely come back again!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service which was appreciatedGreat service which was appreciated since I was dining with a client. My client loved CG and kept commenting on the service and the ambiance. Food was good, but I would not go here for a culinary experience. Still, great experience.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food - but sat rightGreat food - but sat right by the door - so it was cold and loud.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent steakhouse withExcellent steakhouse with very attentive service. The noise level is normal for a midtown steakhouse, so it's not really a romantic place. But for a great meal with an expansive (and expensive) wine list, you can't go wrong here.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Capital Grille is oneThe Capital Grille is one of our regular places. We always have a great dining experience because the service and food are always consistently well done. Our waitress was so sweet. She overheard us celebrating our wedding anniversary and she brought us over two glasses of champagne. She was sweet to our 3yr old daughter and brought her a piece of dessert. We had the perfect evening out celebrating our anniversary. The steaks are always cooked exactly how you request them. The sides are large for sharing and so yummy. Their wine list is very impressive, although we have seen their prices go up significantly. We always felt we got a great wine for good value when dining there. That feeling has changed. We will still go there regularly3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMreliableGreat open room - reliable entrees - the lobster crab cakes were our favorite. As was the salmon - so it is safe to go even if you both don't want steak.2/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
